Melizana features ‘Mediterranean Cuisine’, with a variety of dishes most of us would identify as ‘Greek’ or perhaps ‘Italian’, but whatever the reference, the food we ordered was very good. Prices are in the moderate range, with most entrees between about $18 and $30. The server brought us some fresh warm bread with garlic butter, which was very good but... More

We've eaten many times at Melizana and always get a great meal; the meal however was not as tasty this past week when we went for supper (the garlic chicken breasts were lacking greatly on garlic - very bland tasting). As per other people's reviews, I agree that the establishment is way to dark; they should add provisions for the... More

As a frequent diner in the city, this is one of my favorites. Everything is good. Always enjoy it although I do find the lighting a little dark and drab but the food and service outshines it!

The food was great, I just dont sitting in a cave when I eat. The interior is way too dark for me and my family. Depressing. Asked the waitress to open the blinds and she said they were fixed and couldnt be moved. Ugh. Is there a reason you shouldnt see what you are eating? Wont be in a hurry... More

After wandering around downtown looking for someplace to eat, we were heading back to our hotel when we drove by this unassuming-looking restaurant. We stopped, and were able to be seated immediately. I had avgolemno soup and a greek salad, and my husband had a gyros plate-kind of a deconstucted gyros. A small hot loaf of crusty bread came with... More
